Cold, an Unfamiliar (Brief) Feeling

... and I had the best shower ever. For the afternoon we got a tuk-tuk to go see this big temple complex. It was quite beautiful and very different than the Thai Wats that we'd seen before. Apparently the biggest one is really. Ice inside, but it's closed between 12 and 1, which is exactly when we got there and we were baking out in the sun walking around, so we didn't want to stay out there any longer just killing time. Plus, temples are pretty major theme on ...

Vietnam Part 2 and Laos

... of their likeness. Next stop was lunch – a sad looking buffet of luke warm old looking food.

After lunch we went on a boat ride. Each boat was two passengers and a rower (our rower rowed with his feet so he could use one hand to hold an umbrella over his head, and the other to play with his phone – it was quite impressive). The boat trip took us along a river through what they called the Halong Bay on land – huge karsts rose out of the ...

The New Year celebrations are well and truly under way in Laos. Unfortunately that meant we were drenched by supersoakers a few times and the 2 attractions that we wanted to visit were shut! We were forced to spend most of the day relaxing and escaping the heat.

When we got ...

... pretty well. There was a stop at 1am at a restaurant in the middle of nowhere. We rolled out of the bus and stood looking dazed and confused but everyone else woke up and ate. After this interruption we didn't wake up until 6 and got into Vientiane at 06:30 so it all worked out ok. Over breakfast we actually booked our flight to Siem Reap in Cambodia. As we were planning on leaving the next day we thought this would be a good idea. We are getting very bad at ...

Ok...where do we start!

... who took us to the bus station where we were dropped off at just a few days earlier, We showed our receipt to the gentleman at the desk and he then pointed to some seats, we assumed it would then get busier as we had arrived an hour before to allow us to get some good seats. At 10am we were then told that we were to be taken to the southern bus terminal to get our bus, this annoyed us as we could have got the tuk-tuk there in the first ...

    I have to declare an interest as I know the owner. That said I am being as honest as possible. The Guesthouse is slightly out of the centre but is still only 400 yards from the night market and a short walk to the riverside. On a map look for the local Governors office and the GH is just opposite.

    Should you be a light sleeper I suggest you get a room at the back as there is some road noise. There are good restaurants and cafes nearby and the little pho shop two doors down stays open late and sells cold beer.

    The GH itself is well built and nicely finished the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Bathrooms are a good size with quality fittings and excellent showers with plenty of hot water and a good pressure. he airconditioning is effective and modern so fairly quiet. Flat screen TV on the wall has more than 40 channels inc BBC world and CNN. I like the fact that they have bedside lights so that you do not have to get up to turn the lights out!

    Breakfast iserved in the lobby nd is the usual Lao fare. Fried Eggs or Omlette Bread or Croissant butter and Jam. Plate of fruit and tea or coffee. The staff are helpful and attentive although some do not have much English.
